Workout Wednesday......

I am so happy to be bring my workouts back on the blog! I wish I could tell you it came easy for me and that I didn't struggle with my weight and working out, but that would be a lie! I have a hard time especially when it comes to nutrition and let's just face it, what you eat plays a huge role. Somehow, after my birthday I managed to put on 6 lbs and I was already over the weight I like to be at by 7 lbs. Yeah that's right, that would be a whopping 13 lbs I need to get off. That being said, 13 lbs on a 5'2 frame makes a BIG difference. I have to keep in mind, I've been able to lose it before so I know I can do it again! Bringing back my workouts on the blog is going to hold me accountable and bring consistency, both of which I need!! I hope you guys will join along with me and I would love to hear y'alls goals and results!! 

"Push Routine"

Back squats x 4 sets 20 reps/set
45-65 lbs

**TRX split squats x 4 sets (body weight) 

Standing dumbbell presses x 4 sets 15 lbs 
15 reps/set

** Upright rows x 4 sets 15lb dumbbells 
  
3 rounds

Broad jumps

Squat presses - 12 reps with 15lb dumbbells 

Burpees - 12 reps



My outfit details

**TRX split squats 


**Upright rows 



Along with today's workout I thought I would include some great workout gear for every type of workout! I am currently doing barre twice a week along with weight training and I am LOVING it!!
I gave yoga a try too, but it didn't go so well.....more on that next week during wine talk ;)

  2. I'm so glad you posted this. I hate working out and I just started back into it last week. I bought a bunch of new workout clothes so I am hoping that gives me motivation. Have a great day girl

  3. Do you ever work out at home? I am dyi to find some stuff to do at home, but don't want to have to spend a fortune on equipment.

    1. Tiffany, I recommend Insanity if you are looking for a good home program that doesn't require equipment :-)

  5. Can't wait to hear your experience with yoga because I've never really gotten into it. I have trouble sitting still that long and just being in the room. I'd rather be moving around, lifting weights and listening to my music! Love these posts, lady!!

  6. I normally stick to strength training, but know I should try other classes. I don't know why, but group classes intimidate me!

  7. Hey girl...I'm with you. I am so tired of the rest of this baby weight. In 8 mos since she's been born, I have lost nearly 50 lbs...but when your ass gains 57 lbs during pregnancy, well you pretty much have your work cut out for you. None of that weight came off easy...have been working my ass off. Anyway, I'd love to meet up for bridge strolls if you are ever interested. Also, let me give you a tip...those Bulgarian squats you're doing, try it with a bench if you like and add some weight...women sometimes have trouble lifting heavier and always want to use body weight, but believe me, with weights, the results will come. Do 3 sets: lighter DBs for 15 reps on each leg, medium DBs for 12 reps on each leg and then your heaviest DBs that you can stand to do 8 reps on each leg for. You can also drop set after that to the lighter weights for 8 more reps on each leg. :-) Hope this helps! xo

  8. You look great! But I appreciate you admitting that it doesn't come easy. It doesn't for me either, and post-baby I need to get my huge butt to the gym. Buying a cute new wardrobe may help. Hello Lulu!
